Cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival 2013 - Le Gothique. Pours clearish brown with a frothy beige cap. Nose of nice chocolate, mellow roast. Light to medium sweet flavor with moderate toasted bread, light milk chocolate. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Lightly earthy and dry to finish with more chocolate character. Rich but mellow and very well balanced.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2008
Cask gravity at Battersea BF 08. Dark ruby with lasting bubbly beige head. Mild aroma, some choc. Rather a nice dark mild aroma. Bit of tarryness. Decent in mouth, some dark fruits, a little choc powder. Good dark mild with a good fruit/choc mix. I can see why it gets some solid scores.

Cask (Ealing BF2008)
Classic dark mild appearance. Coffee, rich malts, and hoppy aroma. Also coffee in a well-balanced taste. Very tasty, very much like my 2nd real malt (not extract) home-brew. Alas that means nothing to anyone else.
